Fugro is providing positioning and construction support services for Jumbo Maritime on the Mero 1 deepwater field development located approximately 180 km off the coast of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

Using its Starfix Navigation Suite and augmented reality QuickVision camera system, Fugro is supporting Jumbo with the installation of 35 subsea torpedo piles and 24 mooring lines down to water depths of 1,980 m. This infrastructure will be used to anchor the Mero 1 floating production unit and associated equipment.

The work is being performed onboard Jumbo’s Fairplayer heavy lift crane vessel and is estimated to last six months.

The Starfix and QuickVision solutions will provide real-time positioning for subsea construction and installation activities without needing any hardware mounted on the subsea infrastructure, which Fugro said reduces risk, increases spatial awareness and streamlines workflows.
